If you are a vegetarian or vegan, or just want to try and live in a more environmentally sensitive, ethical way then vegetarian shoes might be just the thing for you. Put aside your stereotypes and prejudices because there isnât a tree hugger or hair shirt in sight. Modern vegetarian shoes encompass style and comfort and are right up to date when it comes to the latest trends.
A favourite of âThe Princess Diariesâ actress Anne Hathaway, vegetarian footwear is becoming increasingly popular. Hathaway caused a stir by wearing a pair of designer vegetarian stilettos on the red carpet. Other famous cruelty-free shoe supporters include actresses Alicia Silverstone and Natalie Portman. In fact, Portman has launched her own line of vegan and vegetarian shoes and is championing them direct to customers.
Youâll find vegetarian shoes available in a wide range of different colours and types from shoes and boots, to sandals and pumps. With menâs and womenâs ranges available, there is something to suit every style, every outfit and every occasion.
If you are buying shoes online itâs a good idea to check the size guide produced by the manufacturers as the way a shoe fits will depend on its make. If you arenât sure, experts suggest that itâs best to buy slightly too big than too small because then at least you can turn to an insole to add extra support.
